Yet again another trip to minera with reddood, andyj and one non member. This time though we went further and deeper than weve been on previous visits in fact a lot further. This mine makes a bigger and bigger impression on me every time i go, its a spectacular and just gets better the further you go.

smoke me a kipper ill be back for breakfast

I'll not bother with mine, as they are pretty much the same as yours, but it was a good day.

Got to say a huge thanks to AndyJ for the help with the none member, it was her first underground experance and andy took good care of her.

all day with no kit, LOLz, it takes skill to manage a full day without lugging gear

I do protest though, i'm sure i carried a bag for 20m or so at some point, as well as my own bag may i add. plus it's hard enough to carry my belly around with me, never mind a bag of stuff.

Looks massive in there, I don't think I have done a mine this year

Been in a couple adits that were blocked near the start and wasted 3 trips trying to find an adit that is now gone.
